Hello, jpacklee,

B vitamins, particularly biotin (or "vitamin H"), are thought to help stabilize neurohormones such as serotonin in the brain, and may have some positive effect on symptoms of depression. B vitamins can be stimulating, however, and Prozac is also known to be stimulating. Although B vitamins are available without a prescription, as with any over the counter medication there can be negative interactions with prescribed medications. The best idea is to talk with your doctor about the advisability of taking the vitamins before starting such a program.

Good luck to you!
